Help Me Study Abroad in Patagonia

Hi, my name is Dakotah, and I am an Animal Science major at Cornell University. I have been offered an amazing opportunity to be able to participate in a field course that travels to Patagonia during winter break to conduct research. During the fall semester we will be preparing by learning how to do proper research, then in January when we go abroad we will put our skills to the test. This course provides the opportunity of a lifetime to be able to learn hands on about research and the behaviors these animals. 


This course will explore the ecology, evolution, behavior, and conservation of the diverse Neotropics. It is a year-long course with class meetings in both the Fall and Spring semesters. In between, we will travel to Patagonia for two weeks.

After my undergrad degree, I plan to work with wildlife and do research so this course and the trip will be a great stepping stone for my future. Thank you so much for contributing to my once in a lifetime experience to gain a tremendous amount of experience and memories.
